WORTHINGTON, Minn. (AP) — A court hearing is postponed for the Minnesota dairy farmer accused of contempt for selling unpasteurized milk to customers.

A hearing Thursday in Sibley County District Court has been rescheduled for March 10.

State investigators say Michael Hartmann’s raw milk has made at least 15 people sick. After his dairy products were linked to an E. coli outbreak last spring, the state embargoed Hartmann’s products on his farm near Gibbon. When state investigators later returned to the farm, the products were gone.

Minnesota Public Radio News says Hartmann has denied wrongdoing.
